While there won’t technically be a second scAVENGER! this year, I am currently working on a super fun Scavenger Hunt for the Bicycle Film Festival.

If you enjoyed scAVENGER! as much as I enjoyed throwing it please mark your calendars for Saturday July 12th, 2008.

Check out my post on for more info.

Thanks for looking,



Benefit Concert and Raffle

This is going to be one hell of a shindig. You better make plans for this. I’m setting aside $25 for raffle tickets as we speak. Crawl on over to Save Zito dot COM and check out the details.

Great big thanks

We had a lot of help putting this together. Our thanks is overdue, so let’s roll credits …

Maranatha W. — artist, posters

Roger L. — artist, spoke cards

Mark B. — administrator, feats-of-strength stop

Bob S. — poet laureate with the riddles to flabbergast you

Jarrett and the staff of the 331 — I’m sure you heard how windy it was out there …

Pat and the staff of Grumpy’s NE — For the whiskey donation, the kick-ass jukebox and your continuous support of the TC bike community.

And again, thank you to our sponsors for making prizes, joy and envy possible …

Chuck of Behind Bars — Gracious donor of floor pump and tons of other swag.

Surly and staff — Massive donation of cool items including hubs, shirts, flasks, etc.

Peace Coffee and staff — Pounds and pounds o’ beans. Rad shirts.

Svetlana “Rocket Sanja” — The Loring impresario with the gift certificates.

Jonny5 of Zero Per Gallon — Stickers and patches.

Whoever those vitamin water people were with the fluid refreshments. We don’t know where that came from but thanks, yo.

And, of course, thank you, scAVENGERs, for getting your bike race on despite the rain.

Media abounding…

The photos and videos from Saturday’s race continue to pour in. We are at 203 photos tagged with “scAVENGER2007” with more showing up every hour. If you still have photos to upload please tag them with “scavenger2007” or drop us an email and let us know about them.

Jake, over at Tennis, Everyone?, spliced together this excellent video of he and his 2nd place team, 100 Years of Attitude. He even used a great Boards of Canada track to tie it all together.

Thanks to the 90+ people who braved the rain and came down to scAVENGER! The weather cleared up shortly before the starting gun and turned into a gorgeous day.

We hear at scAVENGER! are too tired to think straight right now but stay tuned in the next few days for team order and photo galleries of the race.

A few mere hours till blast off

In a few hours MPLS’ fun loving folks will be ignoring the Kentucky Derby and gathering in Logan Park for some fun.

scAVENGER! would also like to welcome our out of town teams who trekked from as far as KC, MO and Chicago to play.

Just going to recap a few thing: To find out all the specifics please check out our details page. And for all of you sad sacks that aren’t going to race come watch your friends dash through the 331 Club and Grumpy’s NE. These two bars have been designated as scAVENGER! viewing platforms.

A big thanks Pat over at Grumpy’s for donating a bottle of Irish Whiskey to be raffled at the after party. Grumpy’s is rock solid when it comes to supporting cycling in the Twin Cities.

See you at the race.
